I personally own one of these and have found it to be an absolutely fantastic tool. The CAT-5 jacket stripper on mine doesn't cut very well, resulting in sometimes jagged strips, but that's a small thing in comparison to the other great tools built into this device! I'd recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat and WISH that I'd had one in the field!

I would like to see these fielded to communications companies and platoons within Battalions, i saw this at a show on base at Camp Lejuene. They will be well worth it, and i would purchase one for personal use.
